Location

Oakland, California

Description

A lot of vegetation and places to sit down, meditate, read a book, study, or have a picnic. Your pup will love to play in our one-acre garden. Picking fruit or vegetable etc. is off the limit. Drinking water for animals is provided in various containers throughout the property. Please do not turn on or use any water equipment on our property - we had some serious problems in the past because of this. Please clean up after your dog’s “business”, smile. That’s a mandatory request. Waste bags are provided in a plastic box with other dog’s supplies) and a BROWN garbage can is in the front of the house by the street for your convenience. Thank you! Woof woof! 🌸 Note: in the rainy season we might not change the water for dogs because it’s senseless, so please arrive always with your own supply of water and if it’s raining you might like to wear rain boots as well. Have fun!

    Beautiful spot! We booked it for sunset and it was perfect. Fences are quite low on the left side of the yard that goes to the neighboring property’s yard, so we only let our dog off leash for a short time. However, she is a big dog and a high jumper, so other smaller or less escape-prone dogs may have better experiences! Lots of things for your dog to sniff—truly earns the name Sniffspot!

    Both our dog and we humans had a good time in this cute garden!

  • Cassie B., Feb 20, 2024

    This seems like a beautiful spot and the hosts clearly put a lot of love into it. They were super kind and communicative. Unfortunately, our plans changed last minute and we didn’t get to visit after all, but hopefully we will someday.

    kořistní! Beautiful space to explore.

  • Andrew A., Feb 18, 2024

    BEAUTIFUL and spacious enclosed yard. Our reactive dog had a great time in the private setting. Lots of plants and trees to sniff and lots of space to run explore.

  • Physics F., Feb 17, 2024

    Beautiful space. My dogs had an awesome time. We did have to leave a little early since the neighbor dogs came out and my dogs are dog reactive, but we got to enjoy the space for 45 minutes so not too bad. Will definitely be returning!

  • Jessica S., Feb 11, 2024

    Such a beautiful garden spot conveniently located in Oakland. Wonderfully warm hosts.

  • Rebecca K., Feb 10, 2024

    It's such a beautiful spot. It was perfect! My dog had a lovely time sniffing everything she could, eating grass, enjoying the sunshine, and playing in the open space.

  • Brittany S., Feb 10, 2024

    This was a perfect retreat for a good time with pups. There’s plenty for them to do and explore and it’s a beautiful place!

  • Donna T., Feb 10, 2024

    A secluded oasis. Fully enclosed, so many levels and places for my pup to roam, sniff and run until he couldn’t. Had no worries about my big dog going over or through the fence but he isn’t much of a jumper. There are some areas where the fence is around 4 feet or so but he was fine with that. So much to see and do he didn’t even notice. This will definitely be our go to spot.
